This was an outdoor show that took place in the parking lot of the Waldorf Hotel on a Saturday evening. I recorded Black
Mountain, Ladyhawk and Basketball. During the 1st couple of bands, I hung out in a parking lot across the alley with a
friend where we watched the show for free, drinking beer and smoking weed. This turned out to be a great idea in hindsight
because it was nearly impossible to get into the beer garden once you were inside.
It was Black Mountain's 1st hometown show in almost 2 years, and they had a new bass player, Brad Truax, with them. Their
set was so loud that I'm pretty sure the city got a few noise complaints that night!
This was my 6th time seeing, hearing and recording the band live in the flesh, and the 2nd time doing so outside on
Hastings Street in Vancouver.
Thanks so much to Black Mountain, the Waldorf Hotel and everyone who shared their photos! More photos and reviews here:
This performance was recorded and shared so that it could be captured forever and shared with Black Mountain fans everywhere!

Great outdoor show and first Truax recording
This is a great capture of a clearly inspired Black Mountain on that night playing an outdoor show. The band are on their game and Beau's recording is outstanding. As of this writing, it's the newest recording we have and the first with Brad Truax playing bass. He's clearly not there to mess around and kicks ass. An enthusiastic audience as well as some good chat and some weirdness with their sound system all adds to making this a gem. Give this one a listen, you're sure to enjoy.
